Stressed? Here Is How To Cure It


Stress is an inevitable part of our modern existence, but you don't have to let it get the best of you. 


By battling stress in your day-to-day routine, you can stop pulling your hair out and get back to living a more relaxed life. 

How can you turn your stress-filled life on its head? 

With one of the best weapons against stress: exercise. 

Working Out Works: When stress is getting you down, you need something to kick you out of your funk. You need something that makes you feel good. 

Because every time you exercise, you increase your body's production of endorphins. 

In case you didn't get the memo, endorphins are responsible for those good moods you get in after a race or the euphoria you feel while chomping down on a piece of chocolate. 

However, before you grab a piece of chocolate and skip the gym, remember the end result of each and choose which one will help you battle stress in the long run. (Hint: It's not the chocolate.) 

Best Bets: Now that you know exercise reduces stress, you may be wondering which exercises will be most likely to keep you from banging your head against the wall. Ready to learn what exercise you should be performing as you wage war against stress? Here it is: whatever you enjoy doing.
